Needham & Company maintains a 'Hold' on Under Armour, Inc. (NYSE: UA).

Analyst, Sean McGowan, said, "UA reported 1Q results that were above our admittedly conservative estimates. 1Q sales were $384 mm versus our estimate of $362 mm and consensus of $378 mm. EPS were $0.28, while we were looking for $0.18 and consensus expectations called for $0.24. We believed that the unseasonably warm weather in 1Q would have a greater impact on sales and margins of cold weather apparel...We leave our 2012 EPS estimate at $2.40, as expense shifting cuts into our estimates for later quarters, but we are raising our EPS estimate for 2013 by $0.05 to $3.05, and by $0.15 in 2014 to $2.80. We maintain our rating as we believe the stock’s current valuation discounts the upside."
